WAVE Concept – Directly From Walmart

With the number of heavy trucks constantly increasing, it was perfectly normal for the sustainable development requirements to affect these vehicles, as well, and improve their efficiency.

Walmart decided to make an entrance into the world of heavy trucks with the brand new WAVE concept, something that USA hasn’t yet seen. The aerodynamic design focuses in the middle position of the driver, unlike the standard left side.

WAVE Concept

The control of the truck is made through LCD screens placed around the steering wheel.The driver’s comfort has also been increased, by placing a sleeping compartment right in the back of the driver’s pod.

WAVE Concept

The technical details have been affected by the green current, so the propulsion system is electrical, of course. WAVE uses a Capstone micro-turbine, teamed up with an electric engine.

WAVE Concept

The trailer of the WAVE concept is made out of carbon fiber, which contributes to the truck’s light-weightiness. According to Walmart, this is the very first carbon fiber trailer ever, being with approximately 4000 pounds lighter than any other ordinary truck.

WAVE Concept

Talking about the trailer, it continues the aerodynamic design of the truck, by diminishing the wind resistance and also adding up some extra space for the load.

WAVE Concept

Although it sounds good on paper, there are no plans announced for WAVE to go into production. We would certainly like that, since it is very eco-friendly.

WAVE Concept

EPA has received instructions from President Obama to come up with a new set of fuel consumption economy for the medium and long trucks, which is supposed to take effect somewhere around 2019.

This is an electric concept car, suitable for 2040, with 3D printing being an important part of it. Ok, 3D prints aren’t new to us, but the capacity of 3D printing developed by Luis Cordoba is something different.

Firanse R3

The Firanse concept consists of 2 parts – the cabin with the seats, batteries and the main controls and the second – the brakes, the electric engines and the rest of the technical parts.
